People with discernment, understand this. People who understand psychology and humanity, understand this.
It takes me time to get to know someone, because I don’t make instant decisions as to who someone is. I subconsciously watch them, discern their words, actions, behaviours, patterns. I pick up on their heart motivations.
I’ve known many people, more than they know themselves. I see into their souls. I see where they are at, in their journey of (un)consciousness. I see whether they are asleep. Or awakening. Or awake. I see whether people have self insight, cognitive distortions. I see when people are not honest, including to themselves. I see irrational thinking. I see when people are purely self motivated, or genuinely care about others.
I see a lot.
My life and all the experiences I have endured, have taught me so much. As life experience can.
And it is why I need alone time.
